Our first visit. Popped in for a pint whilst geocaching in the area. Very clean and friendly pub with good food. The London Pride was a very nice beer, and the wife commented on the Guinness. Will have to find another excuse to come back

The food was great but we felt the actual restaurant was not as special as the food. Would probably go again just for lunch but not again for a special meal. Room large and open plan. Also didn't appreciate staff clearing up and getting ready for the next day as we were still eating our dinner.
